The show runs from June 28-August 13, and includes pottery and paintings. Lucy Tokheim is a painter and 2-D design artist. She and her husband Gene produce over 3,000 handmade pieces annually for American pottery collectors and art museums. Lucy Tokheim has dis- played her art locally, region- ally and nationally over the years, and in 2002 was award- ed the Prairie Star, the highest artistic achievement awarded by the Southwest Minnesota Arts and Humanities Council. Gene Tokheim is a studio potter and founder of Tokheim Stoneware in 1973. Gene and his wife combine to create unique, original pottery using traditional design motifs from Scandinavia's historical peri- ods. Gene, too, received the Prairie Star award in 2002. The William Whipple Gallery is located in the SMSU Library and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The Banquet celebrates 25 years A chance to serve For the past 15 years, vol- unteers from Westbrook, Walnut Grove, Storden, Jeffers, Dovray and Lamberton have been travel- ing to "The Banquet" in Sioux Falls South Dakota to assist in a unique ministry of service. In 1985, the found- ers of The Banquet built into its mission statement "the poor should not be served poorly." Since the beginning the goal has always been the same: to feed the body and soul of all who arrive at The Banquet and to treat each guest with dignity and respect. The Banquet now serves 9 meals a week. Evening meals are served Monday through Friday and a noon meal on Saturday. Volunteers serve breakfast on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Each volunteer group supplies the food for the meal and 25 to 35 volun- teers to prepare and serve the meal. If you have been to The Banquet in the past, you will recall the impact the experi- ence made on you. We were giving our "guests" more than just a nourishing meal. We were allowing them to be visible in a world where they are often ignored, over- looked, or worse, forgotten. Our guests have so much to share with those of us who serve there. Their apprecia- tion for our presence hum- bles us, because we are giv- ing that which we take for granted. The stories they share touch our hearts and their smiles remind us that we are so much alike. On Saturday, July 10, area volunteers will once again travel to Sioux Falls to be blessed by the Guests of The Banquet. One group will be leaving at 6:45 a.m. and the second group will leave at 8:45 a.m. If you have never made time for this experi- ence in the past, please con- sider doing so this year. Contact Joyce Vortherms (274-5325) if you would like to assist in this ministry of service or would like more information. Kids Against Hunger Food Packaging The Stewart Satellite of Feeding Children International was started in April of 2003 to enable everyone in the surrounding area and outstate Minnesota to participate in packaging food for starving children. With the leadership of Feeding Children International in New Hope, MN, we are able to enhance their Kids Against Hunger Campaign by adding a mobile packaging unit. This mobility enables us to offer the opportunity of producing the fully nutritious meal supplement to anyone or any community. Our mobile unit volunteers will trans- port the supplies and ingre- dients needed to any loca- tion within 50 miles (or more) of Stewart, MN. Feeding Children International of Stewart will be bringing the supplies to the Westbrook Community Center on Wednesday, July 14. All ages are invited to come and help. The first shift begins at 4:00 p.m. Churches and organizations in the area have been raising money all year to pay for the packaging. Will only be able to package the food for which has been paid for. The cost is 90 cents a bag, which comes to 15 cents a meal. Partners in Ministry has put collection cans at .Bank Midwest and Maynards in Westbrook. Checks can be made out to Feeding Children International of Stewart. Supplemental funds for food packaging are pro- vided by the Cottonwood County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. This has been a favorite summer, family activity for many years now. We look forward to seeing many of you this year! If there are any questions, please con- tact Joyce Vortherms (274- 5325) or Terri Stangeland (445-3135). Pause... and Consider By Pastor Rob Adams The Freedom to Soar But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shah mount up with wings as eagles; they shah run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (Is 40:31). Without God's help, those who know the Lord Jesus can do nothing. They need a sense of their own weakness. With God's help, nothing is impossible for the believer. He needs a realization of the unlimited power of God. When we wait on the Lord He is able to help us do three things. We can soar--mount up with wings as eagles. While God does not want our trou- bles to be avoided, He does want us be able to rise above them. Unfortunately, what often happens in difficult situ- ations is that we take our eyes offofthe Lord. We then fall, and find out how weak we are in our own strength. Peter's experience of walk- ing on the waves pictures this for us. He was fine while he looked at Jesus, but when he began to consider the storm, he sank like a rock. The Lord helps us to run-- run and not be weary. Sometimes it seems we can't keep up with our troubles and enemies. Yet God is able to give us unusual strength and ability. We are encouraged not to be weary as the trials go on and on. Elijah, though he was facing discourage- ment, was able to run ahead of the chariot of King Ahab. God gave him strength in a time of need. God helps us to walk-- walk and not faint. This is normal daily living, as we experience joys and trials. Recall that Israel was able to endure forty years of wilder- ness walking, without lacking food or water, and their shoes never wore out. God can give the believer the strength for every situation. The secret to each of these things is to wait on the LORD to renew our strength. David said that he set the LORD always before him; because He is at my right hand I will not be moved (Ps 16:8). The writer to the Hebrews told us to look unto con- sider Him (Heb 12:1-3). What does it mean to wait on the LORD? Note that it is not the same thing as waiting fo_r the LORD--seeing Him at a distance and hoping that He will come and help us, although that is important. Rather, it is waiting o_n the LORD--attending upon the LORD, as a servant would attend upon his master. This demands several atti- tudes: a right standing--I must be His child; I must be born-again. Holiness--I must maintain a right relationship with my Lord. Love--I must love Him with all my heart, striving to please Him. Obedience--I must attend upon Him, waiting for His instructions. Trust--I must believe that what He has in store for me is good and right. The believer who truly waits upon the Lord will renew his strength. He will mount up with wings as eagles, run and not be weary, arid walk and not faint. HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN?
